DIANA GISOLFI - The School of Verona in American Collections
This paper looks briefly at roles played by J. Paul Richter and Bernard Berenson in encouraging collecting by Americans around a hundred years ago of paintings from the School of Verona. It then considers some disputed attributions and offers some new attributions among examples of Renaissance art from Verona now found in Princeton, Philadelphia and Boston. The reattribution of a large canvas of Christ Preaching from Verona belonging to the Cannon Collection leads to some suggestions concerning the original commission of Veronese's Christ Preaching at the Prado.
